Jackie Armstrong-Homeniuk was elected to the Legislative Assembly as the Member for Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville on April 16, 2019.
She was appointed as the Associate Minister of Status of Women on June 21, 2022.
Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk serves as a member of the Select Special Ombudsman and Public Interest Commissioner Search Committee and of the standing committees on Public Accounts, Privileges and Elections, Standing Orders and Printing and Alberta’s Economic Future.
She was inspired to run for office by her concern with the direction the province was heading in and a desire to make a difference. Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk was a small-business owner at the time and a long-term resident of her riding. She and her husband have raised two children in the community and are proud to call east-central Alberta home.
In the first session of the 30th Legislature she sponsored Bill 201, Protection of Students with Life-threatening Allergies Act. It was the first private members’ bill passed in the 30th Legislature, and it passed with unanimous consent.
Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk is chair of the government Advisory Council on Alberta-Ukraine Relations and the Skilled Trades Caucus as well as a member of the Skills for Jobs Task Force and two regional caucuses. Her extensive business background along with her grasp of the Ukrainian culture make her an ideal member of the council. She also was appointed to the Premier's Council on Charities and Civil Society and is part of several government working groups.
She believes in education and has taken many economic development and business courses throughout the years. She completed postsecondary studies at Grant MacEwan University and the University of Calgary. She is a journeyman hairstylist and owned and operated a salon for approximately 34 years. She also has experience in the insurance industry.
Prior to being elected, Ms. Armstrong-Homeniuk was active in her community. A volunteer and philanthropist, she has worked with several charitable and nonprofit organizations such as local food banks, rotary clubs and chambers of commerce. She has shared her knowledge and time with many other organizations as well. When she has free time, she enjoys spending it in the outdoors and with her family.
She is the 914th Member to be sworn in to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta.
